  1. As the title says, this M5 has the Right (mono) channel which is overly loud and has a lot of bad gain. Almost as if some distortion effect is always on. Interestingly, if I plug inputs and outputs into both channels, then it quiets down and behave as I expect. I've tried a factory reset with no change. I'm handy with electronics, but before I dig out my multimeter and solding iron, I thought I'd ask. Is there some setting that is causing this (that sticks even with a factory reset)?
  2. Hey guys sorry I know this is a basic question but I can’t seem to find an answer in the manual, basically I have always played in mono and I’m now trying to get my head around stereo my signal chain is as follows Guitar > stomp > stomp send which goes > overdrive mono> delay stereo output > reverb stereo output > stereo return of stomp then I’m using just one amp and an IR 1)basically if I plug into a pa from the left and right output from the stomp after this even though I am only using one amp and IR will it retain the stereo spread of the delay and reverb? Or will it all be summed to mono 2) also if I use the amp model from the stomp as one output, then instead of returning one of my reverbs outputs into the stomp send I go directly into another actual amp, so that the stomp amp and ir don’t affect that amp so left output is stomp right output is amp will this create a stereo spread? Thanks again

    Stereo IR

    Good morning everyone. I am new to IR's and downloaded the G12 Celestion pack last night. Everything seems fairly straight forward. However I am running stereo out of the HX stomp. So here is my question.... When I place the IR block at the end of my block chain what do I need to do to specify stereo out of the IR? Or do I need to run 2 IR blocks in parallel and pan then right and left?
  4. Deutsch Français Q: What are the common ohm ratings for guitar speaker cabinets? A: The common ohm ratings are 16, 8, and 4 ohms. It is important to look at the cabinet inputs to correctly match the rating for your setup to ensure the optimal output and performance of your amplifier. While some ohm mismatches are acceptable, other ohm mismatches can cause failure in your amplifier's power amp section. REMEMBER: Impedance is measured in (Ω) ohms. Impedance determines how much current will flow through a component. A very high impedance allows a small amount of current to flow (i.e. a 16 ohm speaker load draws less current than an 8 ohm amp is ready to supply, but it will work safely). A very low impedance allows a large amount of current to flow (i.e. a 4 ohm speaker load draws too much current from an 8 ohm amp, ultimately overheating the amp). Unacceptable Ohm Mismatches: When connecting any amplifier to an external cabinet it is important to keep in mind that the ohm load of your cabinet should not be lower in number than the ohm rating of your amplifier (which can cause the amplifier to fail). I.e. - If the amp output has an overall rating of 8 ohms DO NOT run with an external cab that has an overall rating of 4 ohms. Acceptable Ohm Mismatches: It is acceptable to run the overall ohm load output of an amplifier to a cabinet that is higher in number. I.e. If your amp output has an overall output rating of 8 ohms you can run into an external cabinet that has an overall rating of 16 ohms. Be aware that you will lose ~15-20 percent of perceived volume with solid state power amplifiers when running this type of ohm mismatch, but you will suffer no failures. Q: Can I run two cabinets with different ohm ratings? A: We do not recommend running cabinets with different ohm ratings, as it may create an ohm load that your amplifier will not recognize and can possibly damage the power amp output section. Q: How do I connect my Line 6 amplifier to the external speaker cabinet? A: Your manual should explain most situations you would run into. Feel free to contact us and ask questions re: specific setups not covered in the manual and we will add them to this document. For example: Q: Can I run my Line 6 amplifier without a speaker load (i.e. not connected to a speaker) A: All Line 6 amplifiers (with the exception of the Spider valve series) are safe to run without any speaker load connected. The DT series and Spider Valve series amps **must have a speaker load connected to avoid damage to the output transformer.** Spider II, III, IV Cabinet Wiring - The Spider II & III HD150s are set up with 8 ohm stereo outputs to match the Spider cabs. You will want to use two speaker cables to connect to both jacks of the cabinet. If you do not connect both speaker outputs to an 8 ohm load (or higher) you can suffer a power amp failure. - Spider II & III HD75s runs 4 ohms mono. You will want to use two speaker cables to run the 8 ohms stereo cabinet from the head to the cab (creating a 4 ohm load) If you only use one cable, you may only get two of the four speakers to function. - Please consult the labeling on the cabinet or use a multi-meter to measure the ohm rating to ensure you will not induce failure with an incorrect connection. Q: Is there a video tutorial where I can see different cabinet connection options? A: Line 6 Head and Cabinet Connections Q: I am running my Spider HD with a cabinet from a different manufacturer which has a different ohm configuration that what the Spider HD needs. What can I do? A: Please see the previous information on acceptable ohm mismatches. If the ohm mismatch is not acceptable you may need to have your cabinet modified to conform to the needs of the Spider HD series. Please have this modification performed at your nearest Line 6 Service Center. Q: What are the wattage outputs and ohm loads on the Line 6 amplifiers not already discussed? Vetta/Vetta II HD 300W:4/8/16 ohms HD147 300W:4/8/16 ohms Flextone II HD 200W 2X12:4/8/16 ohms Flextone HD 300W:4/8/16 ohm Duoverb HD 100W:4/8 ohm F.A.Q.: Boxenverbindungen und Ohm Welche sind die üblichen Impedanzen für Gitarren Lautsprecherboxen? Die üblichen Impedanzen sind 16, 8 und 4 Ω. Es ist wichtig, sich die Eingänge der Box genau anzusehen um die Impedanz optimal auf Ihr Setup anzupassen und so eine optimale Ausgangsleistung des Verstärkers zu erhalten. Während manche Ohm-Diskrepanzen akzeptabel sind, können wiederum andere zum Versagen der Endstufe führen. Impedanz wird in Ohm gemessen. Die Impedanz legt fest, wieviel Strom durch eine Komponente fließt. Eine sehr hohe Impedanz sorgt dafür, dass nur eine geringe Menge Strom fließt (z.B.: ein 16 Ω Lautsprecher braucht weniger Strom als ein 8 Verstärker leisten kann, funktioniert jedoch gefahrlos.). Eine sehr niederige Impedanz hingegen lässt eine große Menge Strom fließen (z.B.: ein 4 Ω Lautsprecher zieht zu viel Strom für einen 8 Ω Verstärker und führt zur Ãœberhitzung des Verstärkers.). Inakzeptable Ohm-Diskrepanzen: Wenn Sie einen Verstärker an eine externe Box anschließen ist es wichtig, dass die Impedanz der Box nicht tiefer ist als die des Verstärkers (was dazu führen kann, dass der Verstärker ausfällt.). Z.B.: Wenn die Ausgabe des Verstärkers eine Impedanz von 8 Ω hat, dürfen Sie AUF KEINEN FALL eine Lautsprecherbox benutzen, die nur 4 Ω Impedanz hat. Akzeptable Ohm-Diskrepanzen: Eine Ohm-Diskrepanz ist akzeptabel, wenn die Impedanz eines Verstärkers, den Sie an eine Box anschließen niedriger ist als die der Box. Z.B.: Wenn die Ausgabe des Verstärkers eine Impedanz von 8 Ω hat, können Sie eine externe Box benutzen, mit 16 Ω Impedanz. Aber Achtung, Sie werden ca. 15-20% Lautstärke mit einer Transistorendstufe verlieren wenn Sie diese Art Setup benutzen, aber es wird ohne Ausfall funktionieren. Kann ich zwei verschiedene Boxen benutzen, die verschiedene Impedanzen haben? Wir empfehlen die Nutzung von Boxen mit verschiedenen Impedanzen NICHT, da dies eine Impedanz erzeugen kann, die der Verstärker nicht erkennt und kann so auch die Endstufe beschädigen. Wie schließe ich meinen Line 6 Verstärker an eine externe Box an? In Ihrem Benutzerhandbuch sollte dies für die meisten Situationen ausführlch beschrieben sein. Bitte kontaktieren Sie uns und stellen Sie jegliche Fragen über Setups die nicht im Benutzerhandbuch aufgeführt sind und wir werden diese an dieses Dokument anhängen. Z.B.: Kann ich meinen Line 6 Verstärker ohne Box benutzen? Alle Line 6 Geräte können auch betrieben werden ohne, dass eine Box an diesen angeschlossen ist (mit Ausnahme der Spider Valve Serie). **ACHTUNG, die DT und Spider Valve Serien müssen eine Box angeschlossen haben um jeglichen Schaden zu vermeiden.** Verkabelung der Spider II, II, IV Boxen Die Spider II & III HD 150 Boxen haben 8 Ω Ausgänge um den Spider Boxen zu entsprechen. Sie brauchen 2 Lautsprecherkabel, um diese an beide Klickenbuchsen der Box anzuschließen. Sollten Sie nicht beide Lautsprecherausgänge an eine 8 Ω Impedanz anschließen, kann Ihre Endstufe versagen. Spider II & III HD 75 Boxen haben 4 Ω Mono Ausgänge. Sie brauchen 2 Lautsprecherkabel, um die 8 Ω Stereo Box zu benutzen (was einee 4 Ω Impedanz erzeugt). Sollten Sie hier nur ein Kabel benutzen funktionieren nur 2 der 4 Lautsprecher. Benutzen Sie bitte die Beschriftung auf der Box oder ein Multimeter um die Impedanz zu messen. So können Sie einen Ausfall aufgrund falscher Impedanz ausschließen. Gibt es ein Videotutorial über die verschiedenen Boxen Anschlüsse? Line 6 Head and Cabinet Connections (Englisch) Ich benutze mein Spider HD mit einer Box eines anderen Herstellers, welche eine unterschiedliche Impedanz hat als die, die mein Spider HD braucht. Was kann ich tun? Bitte schauen Sie sich dazu die vorherigen Informationen über akzeptable und inakzeptable Ohm-Diskrepazen an, wenn diese inakzeptabel ist kann es sein, dass Sie Ihre Box modifizieren müssen, damit Sie dem Spider HD entspricht. Bitte lassen Sie diese Modifikation im nächstgelegenen Line 6 Service Center durchführen. Welche ist die Wattleistung und Impedanz anderer, noch nicht beschriebener, Line 6 Verstärker? Vetta/Vetta II HD 300W; 4/8/16 Ω HD147 300W; 4/8/16 Ω Flextone II HD 200W 2X12; 4/8/16 Ω Flextone HD 300W; 4/8/16 Ω Duoverb HD 100W; 4/8 Ω F.A.Q.: Haut-parleur et ohm: Quels sont les impédances communes pour les baffles guitare? Les impédances communes sont 16, 8 et 4 Ω. C'est important de vérifier l'impédance de l'entrée du baffle guitare pour égaler cette impédance à votre système afin de recevoir une sortie et performance optimale de l'ampli. Pendant que quelques discordances sont acceptables, autres peuvent causer un échec dans la section ampli de puissance. L'impédance est mesurée en ohms Ω. L'impédance mesure la circulation du courant dans un composant. Une impédance très haute permet à une petite quantité de courant de circuler. (Par exemple, un haut-parleur de 16 Ω consommé moins de courant qu'un 8 Ω ampli peut fournir. Mais ce setup fonctionne en toute sécurité.) Une impédance très basse permet à une grande quantité de courant de circuler. (Par exemple, un haut-parleur de 4 Ω consommé trop de courant pour un ampli de 8 Ω. Ce setup surchauffe l'ampli.) Discordances ohms inacceptables: Si vous connectez un amplificateur à un haut-parleur externe, c'est important de savoir que l'impédance du haut-parleur ne peut pas être plus basse que l'impédance de l'amplificateur. (Échec de l'ampli) Par exemple, si l'amplificateur a une impédance de sortie de 8 Ω, vous ne pouvez pas utiliser un haut-parleur externe de 4 Ω. Discordances ohms acceptables: C'est acceptable d'avoir un haut-parleur avec une impédance d'entrée plus haut que la sortie de l'amplificateur. Par exemple: Si la sortie de l'ampli a une impédance de 8 Ω, vous pouvez utiliser un haut-parleur avec une impédance de 16 Ω. Attention, vous perdez 15-20% de volume avec un amplificateur de puissance à semi-conducteur si vous exécutez cette configuration mais vous ne souffrez aucun échec. Est-ce que je peux utiliser deux haut-parleurs avec des impédances différents? Nous ne recommandons pas l'utilisation de deux haut-parleurs avec des impédances différents. Ce peut causer une impédance, l'ampli ne sait pas reconnaitre et peut endommager la sortie de l'ampli de puissance. Comment est-ce que je peux connecter mon ampli Line 6 à l'haut-parleur externe? Le manuel d'utilisation devrait expliquer la plupart des situations. N'hésitez pas à nous contacter et poser des questions sur les configurations spécifiques et nous les ajoutons à ce document. Par exemple: Est-ce que je peux utiliser mon ampli Line 6 sans impédance? Tous les amplis Line 6 (série Spider Valce exceptée) peuvent-être utilisés sans impédance haut-parleur connecté. ** Les séries DT et Spider Valve doivent avoir connecté une impédance haut-parleur pour éviter les dommages au transformateur de sortie. ** Spider II, III et IV: câblage du haut-parleur Les Spider II et II HD150s sont configurés avec des sorites 8 Ω stéréo pour correspondre aux haut-parleurs Spider. Vous avez besoin de deux câbles haut-parleurs pour connecter les deux jacks du haut-parleur. Si vous ne connectez pas les deux sorties à une impédance de 8 Ω, vous pouvez souffrir d'une insuffisance ampli de puissance. Spider II et III HD75s sont configurés avec des sorties 4 Ω mono. Vous avez besoin de deux câbles haut-parleurs pour utiliser l'haut-parleur 8 Ω stéréo. (créant une impédance 4 Ω) Si vous utilisez un seul câble, seulement deux des quatre haut-parleurs fonctionnent. Utilisez l'étiquetage sur l'haut-parleur ou un multimètre pour mesurer l'impédance pour vous assurer que vous ne provoquez aucun échec avec une connexion incorrecte. Est-ce qu'il y en a un vidéo tutoriel concernant les options de connexion du haut-parleur? Line 6 Head and Cabinet Connections (anglais) J'utilise le Spider HD avec un haut-parleur d'un fabricant différent, ce haut-parleur a une configuration d'impédance différente que mon Spider HD a besoin. Qu'est-ce que je peux faire? Veuillez consulter les informations précédentes sur les discordances ohms acceptables. Si la discordance ohm est inacceptable, c'est possible que vous avez besoin de modifier l'haut-parleur afin de le conformer au Spider HD. Veuillez faire effectuer cette modification au centre de service Line 6 le plus proche. Quels sont les puissances en watts des sorties des amplis Line 6 pas encore discuté? Vetta/Vetta II HD 300W; 4/8/16 Ω HD147 300W; 4/8/16 Ω Flextone II HD 200W; 2x12: 4/8/16 Ω Flextone HD 300W; 4/8/16 Ω Duoverb HD 100W; 4/8 Ω
  5. Hello Helix and HX wizards, I am trying to run a Wet/Dry rig with (my two amps and) my HX Effects. The "twist" is that I need an FX loop, with this additional element I can't figure out how to make it work without running into some phase issues... Any help ? :) Thanks !
  6. Hi All, I recently purchased a PRS MT-15 to go with my Helix and I'm really dig the set up using the 4 CM method. It works really well when using just the MT-15 with the cabs. However, I'm having some trouble when trying to go stereo with this. To be specific my basic set up is as follows Guitar --> Helix Guitar in Helix FX loop Send --> MT - 15 Amp Input MT 15-FX Loop Send --> Helix FX loop Return Helix 1/4" Left Mono Out --> MT -15 FX Loop Return In path 1 on my helix I have some pre loop effects followed by the FX loop 1 block and post loop effects with the output channeled to 1/4 inch panned hard left. Next, I'm using a load box to try and create a stereo set up. Additional cabling is as follows: MT15 Speaker out --> Two Notes Captor Amp in Two notes Captor Speaker out --> Guitar Cabinet Two Notes Captor Line out (Dry) --> Helix Aux Input [This serves as the input to Helix Path 2] In path 2 on my helix I'm running a simple delay set to 20ms with feedback to 0 and mix 100% followed by an IR and output to 1/4" panned hard right. Finally, to complete the set up: Helix 1/4" Right Out --> Headrush FRFR112 input Problem: The sound through the Headrush is a fizzy mess. I wonder if what is missing is the power amp emulation? Would I need to route my Captor line out into a power amp before feeding it back into the Helix? Or am I doing something wrong with the cabling? Thanks in advance for your help!!!
  7. Is there a way to set up / connect connect two powered monitor speakers (stereo & time based effects) and an amp ( std effects) to the HD500X? I've seen this done, Youtube, with the Helix but would like to set up my HD500X. Thanks
  8. I'm considering purchasing an HX stomp and know that it can do some of the scenarios I want to use with it but I'm not sure about this one. I could figure this out myself in a couple seconds if I owned the pedal but I'm trying to decide if this is possibly before I make the purchase. TLDR: Can you run an amp/cab block on one side of a signal chain only and allow the other to go out unprocessed. The point would be to run a stereo rig with a real amp on one side and a modeled amp on the other. I know that I can do this if I run my entire pedalboard as it exists into the HX stomp acting just as Amps - then I could plug one pedalboard output into the Stomp and one into my amp. Easy. However, I really want the HX stomp to be fully integrated with my pedalboard. I want to run my signal chain as Guitar > Comp > Drive Pedals > HX Stomp > Stomp FX Loop Send > Stereo Delay > Stereo Reverb > Stomp FX Loop Return > Pedalboard out If I do this it lets me add additional effects before or after my delay/reverb or put my delay/reverb after the amp sims if I'm running direct. It also lets me make patches with no amps to run my pedalboard into real amps. However, there is a specific use where I want to run a single real amp and a modeled amp as the other side of the stereo chain. Can I do this within the editor/interface? I would need to put an amp block on the right side signal only. Thanks and sorry if this has been answered - Searching for "Stomp Amps Left Only" or Right Only doesn't give any useful search results...
  9. Volume Controls The overall volume is the Master Volume control. This is controlled by the 'big knob' when the LEDs are red (the default state). All of the other volumes happen before this one and it's ultimately how you control the output level while keeping everything relatively balanced by using all of the other controls. This is a global control. The Guitar Volume happens just before the master and is how you balance the guitar level against the Bluetooth streaming audio that is coming into the unit. This is also a global control and is accessed by pressing the big knob until the LEDs are white. The Channel Volume is like a Master for just the amp, and it is stored with the patch. It adjusts the output level without affecting the tone (like the 'Gain' control on the amps would). This is the control you use to level your presets relative to each other. The slightly quirky thing here is that it does live in the amp processing slot, so it happens in the signal chain before the post effects. In v1.1 firmware and later, pressing the big knob until the LEDs are pink acts as a short cut to accessing this control without the app. The Gain on the amp panel is the per-patch parameter that affects the tone of the amp (also referred to as 'Drive'.) The Volume Pedal is an additional real-time control whose value is not saved with the patch. You can see in the app where it lives in the signal path. The Master control on HD amps is considered a 'deep edit parameter' (like sag, hum, etc.) that is saved with the patch and is exclusive to HD amps. It's the output level of the preamp to the power amp. When you load one of these models, the stored value is "right" for that amp in the default state and it's usually best to leave it where it is unless you are going for a very specific effect. Speaker Modes on 1500 These modes are accessible though the app. Bluetooth streaming audio is effected by the speaker mode selection as well. Mono; Top Horn, Center Speaker. Stereo; Left Coaxial, Center Speaker, Right Coaxial *Note A Limiter is present on this mode to maintain a full stereo image. You will not get full volume in this mode. Stereo Wide; Left Coaxial, Center Speaker, Top Horn, Right Coaxial.
  10. Hi, I admittedly have not had enough time to physically test the cable to make this work but I cannot seem to find a clear answer before I go down the rabbit hole- maybe somebody has had this pop up also? I bought the HX Stomp and want to use it with a Boss MS3 for a fly rig. My goal would be to hook up the MS3 in the FX Loop of the HX Stomp for maximum flexibility of effects ordering. The MS3 is a mono TS input with 2 stereo TS outputs. I want to use those stereo outputs for some of the delays and additional signal routing possible as a result. I am well versed in the HD500 from the past, Helix Native and also HX Effects for editing tones/signals and such. On the HX Stomp, can I create an FX block that allows for the mono send but with stereo returns on it? Any special work arounds to consider on this? I am pretty certain the MS3 will not like a TRS cable at it's input which would neutralize the FX TRS send, I just don't know how a TS cable on FX Send from HX Stomp will affect the block as a return in stereo. It seems like only real work around is 2 blocks, a mono send and then a stereo return - any other ways to do this as 1 block? Thank you all in advance for the help!!
  11. I have the helix on a not so large room, with 2 tube amp on clean , in stereo, I am going from the helix to the amp from the left and right instrument cable output on the helix , NOT the 4 cables Method, and I have this electrical HUMM, that is quite common when you hook two tube amps, with a digital moduler in between, is not so loud , but for prolonged playing time, it builds up on the ear becoming very annoying . so far I tried the ground lift on the back and doesn't help, maybe anyone know a trick or a sort of buffer or a magic pedal that isolates the amps from the electrical current that is creating the noise?
  12. Hi guys, Have recently started using the Helix LT for my live rig and there is one thing I haven't been able to figure out. Withmy old setup I had a freeze pedal at the end of my chain so that I could ring out the last chord of a song between guitar change overs etc. The Helix doesn't have a freeze type pedal so was trying to patch in my actual freeze pedal. I am facing the following problems: I run a stereo rig, with one head and cab going to left FOH and another going right FOH via XLR. I use Send 1 in a stereo send block to my onstage power amp for stage sound, I don't use a mono send as this bounces down my stereo path. If I use Send 2 of the send block block to the freeze and then return into return 1 of a stereo return block this will send the freeze pedal to the left cab only which is ok, but when the freeze pedal is turned off I am sending the dry signal back through the path which messes with the tone / volume. Using the FX loop would work better but as it's a mono pedal, when it returns I only get signal through one side of the chain. Any suggestions on how I can patch this in successfully? Hoping a freeze type pedal is incorporated into the Helix soon! Cheers, Patrick
  13. Hello!, Relatively new HX user here. I am going to try this setup for an ampless rig: HX FX with Vox Stomplab used in the loop for Amp sims. I think it will work pretty well, but I have a question. How would I use 1 or 2 IR's for a stereo output, to the FOH mixer? I want to run stereo through the PA and don't want to sum it to mono.
  14. Hello all! I was using my new HX Effects and getting deeper into my banks, I realized even though I have 2 expression pedals hooked up I was not able to add 2 different volume pedals as 2 different blocks. I like setting up stereo, splitting the the A/B into separate distortions and delays, figured each line needed a volume pedal! I realize I was trying this from the software and not the actual unit itself to adjust the blocks, there is a bit of time yet until the software does everything I was reading. I will try from the unit itself tomorrow when back at it in the AM. Has anyone else noticed this by any chance? Just curious in the meantime before I get to mess with it more myself. I'd love to request this in a future programming update.
  15. Hi there, I bought a Helix about 10 months ago but never got around to using it. My normal gigging and studio rig was/is Mesa Boogie JP2C with a 1x12 Mesa Cab and my pedal board. Nothing crazy. I usually just mic that up and it's done the job perfectly. Guitar is an Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty. The three channels in the JP2C was/is more than enough for me. I've however decided that I wanted to actually make use of my Helix for three reasons. 1) Portability 2) more advance routing without spending more money 3) Modelling has become so good. So, here is my question. I believe the answer is yes, but I am so new to this thing that I might be missing something. What I want to do is have the following Majesty Stereo output with Piezo and Mag through a TRS cable Peizo > Helix Aux In> Whatever cab, effects I want to run> Out to FOH ( MONO or Stereo or WDW..whatever is possible) Mag > Helix Guitar In > into a W D W signal path separate from Peizo > 3 outs to FOH ( Mono for Dry, L/R for wet) Is this possible to within the Helix internally? I've googled and searched to forums but anything I've seen is either 2+ years old, or simply hasn't received any concrete answers. I don't want to leave both the Peizo and Mag on at all times on the guitar, but switch between the two ( this was something someone else was doing from what I read). If it is possible, How do I go about this? Any videos? I've seen the Richie Castenallo vids and many others on YouTube but I don't think I've come across anything this specific. I want to set this up for purely FOH purposes. Sorry for wall of text and please delete if this is in the wrong place or off topic. Thanks!
  16. is there any way i can separate two guitars one in the aux and one in the guitar input? Can i separate both guitars into different amps if i am running stereo ? like having aux input into left amp and guitar input into right
  17. Hi everybody. I've just noticed that the IR loader block in Hx Effects is only a mono effect. So, if you feed it with stereo signal you will get a mono output with phasing/artifacts issues on sound. This is very bad, expecially if you need a stereo image (i.e. double pitch effect, ping pong delay effect).. all the stereo effects are definetely useless if your last block is a IR loader. Of course you can put a second IR loader in path B, but in this way you have to use 2 IR loaders at the same time and you are very limiteded in effects routing. I wonder why Line6 didn't implement a stereo IR loader block.. it would be a killer feature as it would solve a large number of problems.
  18. Hello All My questions are around 'how do you use stereo paths, effects and routing? Q) Do you use 'stereo' distortion in front of an AMP? If I use a dual path with two amps and a stereo Distortion in front of the two amps and I pan A/B is this really creating a stereo path? Q) Do you use a split path with effect in parallel or series? Q) Have you noticed that the smart harmony block, in stereo if its in front of a dual path does NOT split the harmony out to discrete stereo? Q) Do you notice anything interesting about stereo block effects before amp paths?
  19. Hello. I output signal from Helix LT via XLR L & R to my interface. I'm curious what would happen if: 1. I output only from XLR Left. What happens to the stereo effects such as stereo delay? Do the L & R channels get combined? 2. Sometimes I output XLR L & R to my interface, and then go from 1/4 L out to my guitar amp. In this case is the 1/4 L only outputting what is going out of XLR L, or do XLR out and 1/4 out function separately so that XLR L & R output as separate stereo signal, and 1/4 outputs a combined signal? Thanks.
  20. Hey Folks, thanks for your help! I would love to know, if the output of the Relay G30 Reciever is a symmetrical or unsymmetrical Output. Is it a Stereo or a Mono Jack? Kindest regards from Germany, Johannes
  21. I play my pod directly into my amp, using only a few effects and completely bypassing the Pod's amp model. My signal flow can be seen in the attached image. As you can see, the signal splits into stereo between the null amp block and mixer. If I'm playing directly into my amp stack, should I only use one of the 2 signal paths by centering it and muting the other one in the main mix window? Or should I keep them hard panned like in the picture? Will there be a difference in sound coming out of my cab? Thanks Edit: I dont think the image uploaded properly. The signal is mono throughout my pre effects chain, then splits into two separate paths between the null amp block and mixer, then returns to mono out of the mixer into the null FX blocks.
  22. Attention all you two-voice-at-the-same-time-junkies. Here are some alternatives for you. They are derived from Mama Bear. I used Logic Pro's Impulse Response Utility, they are all 32-bit (recorded at 24 and converted) 48K (recorded that way NOT converted) 2048 (a couple are 2047 or 2046, they work the same, it's just really hard to crop exactly 2048 in that clunky program) IRs. All of them work in Helix. I tested them. Here's the thing. Mama Bear makes you not only choose the model, but the input device. I chose the setting that matched my PowerBridge, with EQ flat, captured all the IRs 100% wet (of course), and named them in a manner that should make total sense (ros means rosewood, mah means mahogany, etc. let me know if you can't figure the name of one of them or just download the Mama Bear manual). The number at the front is the number of the model in that manual. A few really cool and different ones are the Gypsy Jazz, Archtop Jazz and resonator models. Very surprising. What surprises me even more is that even though they were made with the "wrong" input selected for a "real" acoustic guitar, they seem to work great in that way! I tried some with my Crowdster and they worked really well. More subtle, I think, than the Fishman Aura ones floating around, and you may like those Fishman ones better (for certain things I think I still do). I will make a sample video when I can, and will probably capture another set with the under-saddle input circuitry selected to see if it works better with acoustic guitars. I attached a zip file if you want as well. same files as the link above. 2 things. 1. Let me know what you think and if they are useful and 2. post a ridiculously overstated compliment right here if you download them. Something like "Peter Hamm is the most amazing human that has ever lived and I want to be like him when I grow up", you know... something like that to make me feel good about myself.

  23. Hello, I'm looking to buy a helix soon and have been constantly reading forums/watching videos. One thing I read about is mono vs. stereo delays and reverbs. I read that using a stereo delay on a mono speaker would sound bad. When I'm playing live, I will go stereo XLR to FOH and then mono line to my QSC K10 for stage sound. If I keep the same stereo patch, will it sound bad through my speaker? What's the best way to do this? Thanks!
  24. Hey everyone, Firstly, thanks for spending some of your time to give me a bit of help. I've recently moved country, and a friend gave me some speakers as a house warming gift. Problem is, they only have a single auxiliary input, and my UX1 has stereo outputs (quarter inch). WIth my previous speakers back in the U.K., it was simple. I had a cable which connected from the stereo 1/4 inch outputs, to stereo RCA, which I just plugged into the speaker set directly. No problems - stereo to stereo. Now I have bought an adapter to mix the stereo 1/4 inch down into a single auxiliary cable. The problem is, I think I am missing audio this way. Namely, when I test the configuration in windows sound (i.e. playback devices > line 6 UX1) and click to test the speakers, it plays the test sound for the left speaker, but not for the right speaker. However, if I take my aux cable, plug it directly into my computers port, and test, it will play the test sound through both speakers. I don't get why mixing down the stereo to an auxiliary with the UX1 causes only one speaker to work, because surely my computer is mixing the stereo into a single auxilary cable, yet it is still coming out of both speakers. Hope this makes sense. Is there any work around? Or does a UX1 just always require you to keep a stereo to stereo configuration? And buy speaker hardware which has a stereo input option? Cheers everyone. :D Joe.
  25. Hello everyone. I have created a stereo patch that I really like but I was wondering how everyone else achieves it. I am only using one amp and cab at a time. I use a simple pitch shift that just a few cents off and a little bit of delay in it's own path on the right side - 100% wet and the left side is dry. Stereo reverb is last but not heavy in the mix. I have tried chorus and I don't like it. I have tried just using the delay trick and that is OK. What unique methods have any of you used to create a stereo sound with only one amp and cab? Is there something I haven't thought of? Thanks in advance.
